About Jack's Solar Garden

Solar energy produced in the heart of Colorado.

In Boulder County, off North 95th St, over 3,200 solar panels will create a 1.2 MW community solar garden—enough to power over 300 homes. Jack’s Solar Garden will be a model for farmers along the Front Range on how to produce renewable energy while improving agricultural production via agrivoltaics.

So, what is agrivoltaic? It is a fancy word for co-developing a single area of land for both the generation of solar power and agricultural use at the same time.

Jack's Solar Garden is looking for volunteers help support the upkeep of the newly established pollinator habitat around the perimeter of our now-being-built solar array! Opportunities will be on weekend mornings from 8–11 am consisting of checking on the health of perennials, weeding, lightly moving mulch, and staking taller plants. If you are interested in volunteering, please reach out to Byron Kominek, owner of Jack's Solar Garden, to register for the next volunteer day! Email byron@jackssolaragarden.com

Why Bird- and Pollinator-Friendly Gardens Are Critical

Planting a better world for birds and people.

As our communities grow, the native plants that birds, pollinators, and other wildlife depend on are vanishing. Fortunately, you can help.

Planting native plants is a simple but powerful way to help our ever-diminishing bird and bee populations come back to life. Native gardens not only provide food and shelter for birds and other wildlife, they also conserve water and eliminate chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Vibrant and full of life, gardens such as Jack’s Solar Garden make our communities healthier and more beautiful.

Your support will help us plant our largest Habitat Hero demonstration garden. With over 3,000 trees, shrubs, and perennials, this garden will provide forage and space for songbirds and pollinators. The pollinator habitat around the solar array will provide a security and visual barrier without the need for a fence, store added carbon, and offer fruit picking to the public.

We look forward to unveiling this garden with a spring 2021 ribbon-cutting ceremony.
